Posts Tagged ‘Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day’

Witches, wizards, druids, vikings, and Pagans gathered to celebrate community and unity. Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day was held on Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 10-6. Held at Murray Park, the festival allows the Pagan community to educated, show their pride, and “come out of the broom closet” if they feel so. This Year’s theme was “A Harvest of Balance and Blessings.”

This year’s festival included over 20 vendors, a kid zone, Belly Dancing by Thia, and music. The opening ritual was performed by the staff of Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day. The day was sunny, shiny, and hundreds of people strolled in to shop, look, and attend public ritual. Even the local LDS missionaries stopped by for a look around.

SLPS did very well, needing a double booth this year for their $5 tarot readings. They were discounted last minute as an extra bonus for customers and to beat out competition. The closing ritual was performed in the Norse tradition by Harts Hearth Clan of Tooele Utah.

Thanks to all who came and helped out at the booth at this years Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day. This year’s was hosted by Crone’s Hollow on Main street on September 10, 2011 from 9am-6pm. The smaller space was unable to allow for all the vendors that usually would have came. UUPS gave away lots of information, met new people, discussed why we’re here and even had a few people sign up! Live rock music provided by Lady of the Lake set the scene as the sun rose high in the sky before we were all rained out about 4:00 pm. As a bronze sponsor of Pagan Pride Day in Salt Lake City, UUPS was happy to attend, renew friendships, relationships and provide the support and inclusive of the pagan community in the Salt Lake Valley. Till next year!
